VNR: Textiles for the future (rushes)

38 views

Researchers are hard at work developing textiles with optimal functionality : tights that apply moisturizers, garments that absorb odours and regulate perspiration, fabrics capable of protecting themselves from spots. Tomorrow's clothing will be intelligent and functional. Cosmetotextiles have already reached the market. A video report illustrating the research being carried out to develop intelligent textiles is available to television stations, at no cost and royalty-free. It was filmed in specialised research centres: in Belgium, near Liege, the Centexbel laboratory is studying electronic applications for the textiles of the future and the reaction of fibres to nanoparticles. The French Textile and Clothing Institute (IFTH) is working on controls of new materials to test their resistance to fire, water and tearing.
